Spirituality and the Search for Meaning

Spirituality and the Search for Meaning

Many people say they are spiritual but not religious. Many are looking for an experience of the sacred that feels fresh and alive. They may find comfort, solace, and a taste of the numinous in nature, art, poetry, or dance. Some search for connection and meaning in traditions other than what they were raised in. Searching for “the juice in life” is an important part of the psycho-spiritual journey. Whether one finds it in a religious tradition or not, meaning and a sense of the sacred are an important source of nourishment. Jung believed that experiences of the sacred dimension have tremendous healing power.

“My interest is in the numinous and I have to lead my patients to an experience of the numinous. If you can have this experience you are freed from the curse of illness.”  – Jung

I have a very open approach to helping others find their own unique source of soul, of the sacred, of the juice of life. Perhaps this is what your psyche is longing for now. I am always happy to assist with this kind of inner exploration.

 

In a Tree House

Light
will someday split you open
even if your life is now a cage,
For a divine seed, the crown of destiny,
is hidden and sown on an ancient, fertile plain
that you hold the title to.
Love will surely bust you wide open
into an unfettered, blooming new galaxy
A life-giving radiance will come,
O look again within yourself,
For I know you were once the elegant host
To all the marvels in creation.
From a sacred crevice in your body,
a bow rises each night
and shoots your soul into God.
Behold the Beautiful One
from the vantage point of Love.
He is conducting the affairs
of the whole universe
in a tree house – on a limb
in your heart.
